Wheeling and Dealing is a must-have guidebook on traveling
with a disability in the USA. Whether you’re a traveler with a permanent or temporary disability, a supportive family
member or a professional healthcare attendant, you will benefit from Wheeling and Dealing. We also recommend this guidebook
to airline attendants, Amtrak attendants, caregivers, doctors, nurses, personal care attendants, and physical therapists.
The book provides tips for traveling by train, plane, bus and automobile and will help travelers of all ages with disabilities
ranging from hearing loss and visual impairment, to mobility limitations and diabetes feel safer and more comfortable as they
travel. No matter whether you travel for business or leisure, this book offers sound and practical advice.
"The heart of travel has always been beyond mere itineraries and “sight-seeing.” Similarly, Wheeling and
Dealing is more than a mere “How-To Guidebook.” Written with hard-earned wisdom and wit, it offers readers nothing
short of a first-class ticket to expanding their horizons, both inside and out."
"Wheeling and Dealing is an excellent resource for anyone with a disability.
As physical therapists, our goal is to help people live their lives in the presence of a physical disability using any and
all available tools. Certainly, the presence of a disability should not narrow one's world or limit participation in travel
activities. However, all too often, we hear stories from patients who choose not to travel for fear of overcoming the many
associated obstacles, e.g. waiting in long lines, manipulating luggage in a crowd, getting through security, managing steps
or moving walkways, etc. Whether people are living with a hearing, visual, physical, or other disability, this book provides
useful and, at times, humorous approaches to help everyone navigate the world of travel." - Kathleen Ganley, PhD, Lisa TenBarge,
Sue Maris Allen and the Reverend Barbara Ramnaraine have traveled extensively
on their own and with friends and family. Both know, first-hand, the issues involved as a traveler with a disability. This
mutual understanding brought them together to write Wheeling and Dealing. Sue experienced strokes in 1999 and 2000 resulting
in paralysis and visual impairment. Although the visual impairment remains, she has minimal residual weakness, thanks to her
physical therapist and her physicians. Barbara was legally blind at birth, and has been totally blind for over forty years.
She has also received two hip replacements.
